Box lacrosse, also known as indoor lacrosse, is an indoor version of lacrosse played in Canada and becoming very popular in the US. Box lacrosse is played between two teams of six players, in a hockey rink with a turf surface. Due to the presence of hockey boards, there are fewer balls out of play, fewer stoppages in play, and more rebounds.
Box lacrosse sessions will be held at the Midland Civic Arena on Wednesdays and Thursdays from Nov through Feb. Each session will consist of one hour of scrimmaging.
Spots are limited.
No special "box" protective gear will be needed. Field lacrosse protective gear will be adequate (for boys, that means: helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, mouth guard, and cup).

The Midland Lacrosse Club is a 100% Membership association with US Lacrosse. All coaches and players are required to be members of US Lacrosse. Among the benefits of membership, one of the most important is liability insurance coverage for players, coaches, our board, and our other volunteers. In order to register for winter lax at the civic arena, you will first need to secure a valid membership with US Lacrosse.
Note that this schedule is tentative. We may need to make changes depending on the registration numbers and/or coaches' schedules...but this represents our current plan.
There is only one girls group, and the other groups are boys groups.
